Dr Mumbo

Will the real Willy please stand up?

Dr Mumbo is by no means above a typo, and neither, it seems, are the folks at Analogfolk.

Yesterday, the creative shop sent out a press release announcing a raft of new hires – including Willy Mason. But exactly 24 hours later, they’ve been forced to admit, they have, in fact, not hired the NRL legend.

In an email titled ‘Will the real Willy please stand up?’, which hit Dr Mumbo’s inbox this morning, the agency has realised they actually hired Willy Maitland, not Willie Mason.

“If not, they will just have to live with people thinking they hired the boofy footballer,” the email said of the request.

Dr Mumbo thinks it’s worth noting an alternative Willy Mason is an American singer-songwriter.

Either way, will the real Willie/ Willy please stand up?
